Vector Network News for week ending 5 January 2014

NETWORK SUMMARY for week ending 5 January 2014
It’s been a relatively quiet start to the New Year with just two car v poles in the New Windsor and Mt Albert areas.

There were four building fires that Vector crews attended. These were in Manurewa, Glen Eden, Takapuna and Hobson Streets. Crews isolated power in each of these incidents for the Fire Service.

Lines were reported as being down in Greenlane and Henderson Valley during the week. In both instances, our crews discovered that Telecom assets had been damaged.


A smell of gas was reported in Whataupoto, Gisborne but there were no traces of gas found when we attended the scene.


Vector’s internationally recognised smart metering business is allowing more options for customers and driving efficiencies with new infrastructure control technology.

Vector’s smart meter roll out is one of New Zealand’s largest door-to-door infrastructure projects. The multi-year programme demonstrates Vector’s commitment to delivering customers choice. At the same time, it provides an essential energy service to our large and extremely diverse customer base safely, reliably and efficiently.


• Vector owns over 17,800 kilometres of overhead and underground lines in the greater Auckland area, and 12,752 of gas pipe lines, almost half of which supply gas to Auckland.

• Vector, proud sponsor of the Arena.
